Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 11% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.7/100, a mean average of 76.3/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 76.3/100. The standard deviation for this album is 13.7.

James McMurtry has always seemed "mature" in his song writing, despite albums titled Childish Things and Just Us Kids, but it's most evident in this album. Where in the past he's played the wise and angry voice of the common man against the politics of the elite, CG is a McMurtry who sounds much more tired and beaten down... and older. And although much of the political outrage isn't there, the album is still centered around societal issues. One of the best folk/country songwriters for the past 30 years, and I think this is his best album yet

Simply put this is one of the best written albums you will find. Not much politic stuff here like some of his other albums but some great stuff and storytelling at its finest.
